    Marlins SP Brad Hand issues six walks in loss to Nationals

    Marlins starter Brad Hand's control deserted him Saturday, as he allowed three runs on four hits and six walks over 4 2/3 innings while striking out four. He's now issued 14 free passes in 10 1/3 innings over his last four starts, and the only thing keeping Hand in the Marlins' rotation right now is a lack of viable alternatives. His next start is currently scheduled for next Saturday, at home against the Braves.

    Marlins SP Brad Hand scorched for seven runs in loss Saturday

    Marlins starter Brad Hand did not have a good effort against the Mets on Saturday. The left-hander was unable to make it out of the second inning, as he allowed seven runs on six hits over 1 2/3 innings in the 7-0 loss. Hand (4-5, 5.20 ERA) was greeted rudely in this one, as Travis d'Arnaud (three-run) and Wilmer Flores went (solo) went back-to-back in the first inning. Juan Lagares added a two-run shot as part of a three-run second inning against Hand. Hand is 2-3 with an ugly 7.19 ERA over his last five starts.

    SP Brad Hand has fingerprints all over Marlins victory

    Marlins starter Brad Hand deserves a hand for his performance Thursday night against visiting Philadelphia. Hand yielded just one run on four hits in six innings and took advantage of huge run support to even his record to 3-3. He walked two and fanned five. The left-hander allowed a run on a Darin Ruf sacrifice fly in the first before blanking the Phillies the rest of the way. He faced two batters over the minimum after the run scored. The Marlins have ridden a hot Hand since he rejoined the rotation. He has put together three strong starts in four outings.

    Marlins' Brad Hand throws four shutout innings in spot start

    Making his first start since June 8, Marlins left-hander Brad Hand pitched well against the Mets on Tuesday. Hand, who threw two innings of relief on Friday, tossed four scoreless innings on Tuesday. He allowed five hits and a walk while striking out three, but he did not factor in the decision in the 5-1 loss. Hand left the game with his team leading 1-0, but the Mets tied the game in the sixth and tacked on four more in the eighth. With the recent trades the Marlins made, dealing away Mat Latos and Dan Haren, it remains to be seen if Hand becomes a permanent member of the rotation, or if he will head back to the bullpen.
